I am buying my first flat in Southville with a loan from Nottingham Building Society. The builders refused to budge the price so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead. The sale representative suggested that I not disclose to my solicitor about the extras as it could jeopardize my loan with the lender. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one near me in Southville I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Southville for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
